Double life on the countryside

In Lunteren young adolescents come together a couple of times a week. Drinking beer is part of it. Is it a problem, or part of a life-fase?

All over the country youngsters get together to enjoy their free time together. In strong Christian communities it's a place to relax for an instance, "let some pressure off," explains Luuk.
Community consultant Luuk Miedema is, together with his colleague Anne-Jan, a familiar face for the youngsters on the countryside in the so-called biblebelt of The Netherlands, to make sure they take responsibility for their alcohol use and face the consequences.
